It was clean under the cover what I found is it cools just fine but the duct work is not designed very well almost all the air is pushed to the rear of the coach. If you close off the ducts under the AC unit and force the air through the ducts most of the air goes to the rear of the coach leaving the front portion with that huge window very hot.

I am going to design a new vent cover that I can direct more air forward. I machine plastic for a living so I will just make a nice new vent cover for the inside that has some vents to push air forward.

This is the vent cover it has Vent cover

If you close the louvers almost all air is forced to the rear of the coach there are only 2 round vents forward and hardly any air moves forward through them. With the vent cover removed it pushes a lot of air. The vent can't be turned around because of the fresh air portion of the vent. I need a way to divert some air forward. The unit is a Coleman Airxcel model 8534B8797

I used a register deflector available at most good hardware stores. Works great to get the air where I need it most! Quick and easy.

Have you replaced the compactor on the front one. Worthwhile cheap fix. I replaced both and fixed the issue.
